Israel Bombs Hamas Communication Tower – Takes Over Hamas TV Programming (Video)

On Sunday November 18, 2012, as part of Operation Pillar of Defense, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) surgically targeted Hamas’ operational communications capabilities on the roof of a civilian building in the Gaza Strip.

On Monday the IDF took over communications at Hamas TV. The Israelis broadcast warnings to Hamas to cease missile strikes by Tuesday evening or the IDF will step up their attacks.
Israel National News reported:

The Israeli army on Monday took over programming at a Gaza-based Hamas television station “to broadcast warnings” on the sixth day of Operation Pillar of Defense.

Al-Aqsa television, the official station of Gaza’s Hamas regime, said in a statement the Israeli army “is interfering with Al-Aqsa TV,” with the picture going on and off for several hours and sometimes appearing scrambled, according to AFP.

“We took over the Hamas television to broadcast warnings,” a military spokeswoman said, indicating the takeover would probably last for a number of hours.

She told Arutz Sheva that AFP journalists’ claims that “they could see no warning being sent out by the army” were incorrect.

On Sunday, the army took over Hamas radio broadcasts in Gaza for several hours.

The IDF on Sunday bombed an antenna used by Hamas. The surgical strike atop the 15-story building caused minimal damage, as seen in an IDF video, but Hamas has claimed that eight journalists were wounded in the operation.

Mainstream media have reported the claim without verification.

    would running the barney theme song be consider crimes against humanity?

    Hamas and the rest of the pali’s depend upon the forbearance of Israel to not be annihilated by Israel. That forbearance was assured by the USA backing Israel; they knew they could win half measures on the battlefield occasionally and the USA would assure their survival. Now, Obama has backed hamas and the rest of the crazies. Israel knows they are on their own and maybe even pitted against the USA for the 1st time in history because Obama doesn’t have to worry about jewish votes anymore; indeed U.S. jews voted FOR Obama. Therefore, the Israeli’s are much more likely to get medieval on hamas this time because it has turned into a matter of actual survival. Obama started this latest war over ther and it has the potential to explode out of control. Israel feels they must stop Iran’s bomb or else become incinerated in their own beds, as hamas told the Israeli’s they would do just this weekend. This is Obama’s fault 100%.

    Obama has blood on his hands all over the world. He and his administration have created A New World Slaughter….not a New World Order.

    So the mainstream slimes are not reporting accurately? Who knew? It’s too bad the journalists were not harmed. Somehow I have a difficult time thinking their welfare is more important than that of Israel. You know the old adage; “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.” So you smarmy little rats called journalists, don’t want a boo-boo on your body, leave the area.

    Indiana is right. I still think Barry is an agent of Satan and is doing his bidding.

    The IDF needs to start sniping anyone with a camera! That will quiet down the false propaganda reports! Screw the media – for decades they’ve been a tool of the Pali’s and the Arabs.

    Newsmax says: “Senator John McCain of Arizona suggested using an envoy such as former President Bill Clinton to start negotiations. “We need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together,” McCain said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

    Really? Blow Job Bill? Can’t McCain think of any other person of enormous prestige and influence?

    Meanwhile, the rough, tough, brave, and totally fearless leadership of Hamas remain hidden in a maternity ward of Gaza General Hospital where they continue to broadcast defiant speeches to their constituents.

    “We need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together,”

    Is McCain really this naive? Hamas is never going to “sit down together” and give up anything. It’s antithetical to their end game. How many times do we have to learn this lesson?

    Anderson Cooper is there.. they struck the building while he was on
    air, he’s also reporting that he’s witnessed numerous missiles being
    launched from Gaza, i hope and pray he stays safe, because it won’t
    be an Israeli bomb that kills him for reporting the truth..

    hey McCain..

    you won’t know what’s in it until you read it..

    The Muslim Brotherhood “Project”


    To adopt the Palestinian cause as part of a worldwide Islamic plan,
    with the policyplan and by means of jihad, since it acts as the
    keystone of the renaissance of the Arab world today.


    To provide an Islamic view on all areas, problems and solutions
    relative to the Palestinian question, based on the precepts of Islam.

    To prepare the community of believers for jihad for the liberation
    of Palestine. [One can lead the Ummah to realize the plans of the
    Islamic movement above all if victory is ours], if God wills it.

    To create a modest nucleus of jihad in Palestine, and to nourish it
    in order to maintain the flame that will light the road toward the
    liberation of Palestine, and in order that the Palestinian cause will
    endure until the moment of liberation.


    To collect sufficient funds for the perpetuation of jihad.

    To conduct a study of the situation of Muslims
    and the enemy in occupied Palestine.

    c-Suggested Missions:

    To conduct studies on the Jews, enemies of Muslims, and on the
    oppression inflicted by these enemies on our brothers in occupied
    Palestine, in addition to preaching and publications.

    To fight against the sentiment of capitulation among the Ummah,
    to refuse defeatist solutions, and to show that conciliation with
    the Jews will undermine our Movement and its history.

    To conduct comparative studies on the Crusades and
    Israel, and [the victory that will be that of Islam].

    To create jihadi cells in Palestine, and support them
    in order that they cover all of occupied Palestine.

    To create a link between the moujahadin in Palestine
    and those throughout the Islamic world.

    To nourish a sentiment of rancor with respect
    to the Jews and refuse all coexistence.]

    oh, btw POW John, they’re here, inside our
    , but you already knew that didn’t you..

    [The Muslim Brotherhood is a radical Islamist organization that has
    successfully penetrated both political parties and the delicate areas
    of defense and national security.

    Retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin, executive vice
    president of the Family Research Council, told WND’s Greg Corombos
    that people with connections to the Muslim Brotherhood are in vital
    positions within every significant area of the U.S. government. He
    specifically cited high security clearances for such people in the
    Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security.

    He said neither Republicans nor Democrats want to protest
    too loudly over concerns of being branded intolerant.]
